Location and Terrain
Based near Colville, a small town in Northeast
Washington close to Idaho and British Columbia,
Bearpaw Outfitters are located right in the
heart of Washington’s most productive game
country. This area is consistently the top producing
whitetail deer, bear, moose, cougar, turkey, and
grouse hunting area in the entire state. This is
simply great game country.
The terrain includes
forested rolling mountains and fertile valley
farmlands. There are good proportions of
evergreen forests, logging cuts, natural
openings, and croplands. This area is not as rugged as
most other western areas which makes it more
enjoyable for many hunters.

fields, feeding areas, waterholes, and logging
cuts. Other effective methods include glassing,
spot & stalking, short brush drives, and driving
mountain logging roads.
Your physical condition is not that important.
Anyone can enjoy a high degree of success
regardless of their physical condition because
the terrain is mild and the best hunting methods
for most species involve sitting and glassing.
Private Ranches: The hunting leases range in size up to 2500
acres and offer excellent hunting with
high success rates. These hunting
leases are perfect for hunters with the patience
to sit and watch feeding areas. Limited hunting

Numerous mountain locations offer some
of the best trophy hunting in Washington.
There's not as many animals per square mile in
the Mountains as on the Ranches, but the trophy
potential is some of the best in the northwest.
Hunts are ideal for hunters who like
to cover a lot of country when hunting.
Dale was born and
raised in Northeast Washington and his wife Tara
has lived in Washington since childhood. In 1977 Dale started
guiding hunters and
since then Dale and Tara have slowly expanded
their outfitting business.
With 30 years of outfitting
experience in NE Washington, Dale, Tara, and
their family have endured the test of time. The
Denney Family and their crew of experienced
guides have outfitted hunters from around the
world, of all ages and backgrounds. Regardless
